So I was gonna sign up for the free month of Kindle Unlimited. But the manga selection looks vaguely horrible.

Going through the list, four things became apparent.
1. Kindle (whose one job is books) do not know the difference between graphic novels and manga.
2. There is some seriously hentai stuff in that list.
3. A good deal of the manga are only in Japanese (see 2)
4. After about 20 pages, nothing jumped out to me as awesome,
So the answer is maybe, if you like H-manga and can read the Japanese language.
Edit: After going through the entire list, four more things become apparent.
1. The second half is more of the first, only everything is in Japanese.
2. All of the H-manga material was delegated to the front of the list. Maybe Kindle is trying to market to a certain fandom?
3. I now know there exists a manga called Dragon Cookie, I'm not sure how I feel about that.
4. Bokurano Zombie is not a follow up to Bo-Ku-Ra-No where all the kids that died piloting the giant robot rise from their graves seeking revenge (unfortunately).

Hi, I'm closing this because individual threads requesting advice are against the "personal/help" rule. It looks like you got one very comprehensive answer, which may be sufficient, but if you are still looking for advice about this, please post in The Manga Help Thread (it's "stickied" near the top of the Manga forum.)
